Woburn, also known as Cedarbrae, is a neighbourhood located in eastern Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in the former suburb of Scarborough. Woburn is bordered by Highway 401 to the north, Scarborough Golf Club Road and Orton Park Road to the east, the CN Railway tracks to the south, and McCowan Road and Bellamy Road to the west.
A post-office at Painted Post Drive and Markham Road, and a schoolhouse at Markham Road and Ellesmere Road, today the site of Woburn Collegiate Institute, were important sites in the early community. Painted Post Drive connected Woburn to the southwest via Danforth Road and Danforth Avenue to Toronto, and to the east via Military Trail and Colonel Danforth Trails to Kingston Road and points east (for more details, see Danforth Avenue).
The south and south east sections of Woburn, along Highland Creek, have a great amount of green space, echoed by the tree lined and winding roads typical of the neighbourhood.
Woburn is an upper-middle-class neighbourhood. Residences are split between high rises and single detached homes, which account for almost ninety percent of all residences.
The neighborhood is served by Toronto Transit Commission bus routes. These include the 54 Lawrence East, (which predominantly serves the area) 102 Markham Road, 9 Bellamy, and the 16 McCowan, (the latter three connect to Warden (TTC) Station). The area is also served by three bus routes on Ellesmere Road, which are 95 York Mills 38 Highland Creek, and the 133 Neilson (the latter two serve the Scarborough Centre (TTC) Station). The area is also served by Highway 401 which runs through Toronto from east-to-west.
